If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/8/13

Geez louise! We’re already into the second week of July! A friend told me Sunday night that we had like 170 days until Christmas. Insane, I tell ya. Time flies, whether your having fun or not. LOL So to help us pass the time—since it’s flying anyway!—here’s what we recommend for tonight’s TV. 🙂

kingmaxwell78smallI am still loving King & Maxwell on TNT. Last week’s case of the kidnapped little boy was great. We got to watch Sean & Michelle work to solve the case, putting together clues (with the help of the fantastic Edgar) to figure out that the mother used to be an art thief, and her old partner was out of jail and holding her son hostage in exchange for her stealing a painting from the museum she worked at. The way they set up the bad guy at the end was great, although how they got out of the car with no one noticing, I dunno. Also, Edgar continued looking into the video of the day Sean’s political candidate was shot and killed…and he thinks he’s come up with something that proves Sean was set up to be blinded so the guy could be shot. That’s how I’m taking it, anyway. Hopefully we’ll learn more about it tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Loved Ones,” when the son of one of Sean’s old associates commits suicide, suspicions regarding his death arise. King and Maxwell’s investigation opens up an unexpected case involving a killer targeting the family members of former Secret Service agents.

See if Michelle can keep Sean safe while they find the bad guy tonight on TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, The Glades, Major Crimes, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, Longmire, Siberia, Under the Dome, & Warehouse 13.

getoutalivesmallTonight is the series premiere of Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls, which is sure to become one of the most exciting reality shows you watch. Bear Grylls leads this survival journey that will test 10 teams of two beyond their craziest ideas, in the amazing landscape of New Zealand’s South Island. They must survive the wild, journey as a group, and avoid elimination. Each week, they will send home another team until, in the end, only one duo will be left—the team that Bear believes has shown the most heart, courage, initiative, and resolve in their quest to “get out alive” and claims the prize of $500,000.

On tonight’s episode, “The Wild is Revealing,” Bear Grylls puts 10 teams to the ultimate test in an adventure competition set in dramatic landscapes of New Zealand’s South Island.

To see what this adventure holds, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Bachelorette, Mistresses, Teen Wolf, Siberia, and King & Maxwell.

defiance78smallTonight, the first season of Defiance comes to a close. Last week, Doc Yewell removed the artifact from Irisa and plugged it into a machine, which caused Irisa to scream in pain. Meanwhile, Datak and Amanda continued with their campaigns, and Stahma revealed to Kenya that if Datak lost the election, the shame would force him to kill Amanda. When Nolan confronted Datak about this, Datak ordered his son Alak to take care of the situation. He, in turn, asked his friend Kupac to do the job. At a speech, Nolan shot Kupac as he aimed a gun toward Amanda, but after killing the boy first, Nolan discovered he was only holding a paintball gun.

Who will win the election, and what will it mean for the town of Defiance? Was the shooting all a set-up by Datak to give him sympathy for the election? Will Amanda’s support of Nolan’s actions cost her the election? Or has Datak simply rigged the election as Marsh had suggested? What are Doc Yewell’s plans for the artifact, and what are the effects it’s having on Irisa?

On tonight’s episode, “Everything is Broken,” Amanda is locked in a bitter power struggle with Datak as the citizens of Defiance cast their votes for mayor. At the same time, Nolan is violently confronted by his past; and Irisa must decide whether or not to accept her destiny.

Note: Starting at 9AM/8AMc, Syfy is airing an all-day marathon of the first season of Defiance, leading up to the season finale.

Find out how the season ends tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Under the Dome, Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls, Siberia, Switched at Birth, Major Crimes, King & Maxwell, The Glades, Warehouse 13, and Teen Wolf.

warehouse1378smallAfter these last few episodes of Warehouse 13, my opinion on the show has completely turned around. With the introduction of Myka’s ovarian cancer, the show received a much needed motivation and became a lot better. Also, with the debronzing of Paracelsus, we’ve learned that Abigail is the Keeper of the Warehouse. Paracelsus has been fighting with Mrs. F for control of the Warehouse, while Pete has been telling Myka to start cancer treatment. It will be interesting to see how the season will end and what the show will do for the final shorter season.

On tonight’s episode, “The Truth Hurts,” the team continues their attempt to capture Paracelsus before he achieves immortality; Myka seems to be losing her battle with cancer; Steve learns that Artie has been hiding life-changing information from the rest of the team.

Find out what Artie’s been hiding and how the season ends tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Defiance, Under the Dome, and Mistresses.
